Newark Airport and Howard Johnson’s

I arrived late at night to the Newark Airport.   I got a free shuttle from the airport to the Howard Johnson’s hotel that I pre-booked. Not a great room, but it was cheap! I heard that there was a restaurant attached to this Howard Johnson hotel. I had hoped that it was an actual  “Howard [...]

EVA Airline food, also Taipei airport.

Although the flight back to the states was easier on me than the flight to Bangkok for some reason, the food on the way back was MUCH worse! While I like the slightly bigger seats on EVA Air, the terrible food they serve, and the horrible airport I have to fly through (Taipei Airport) make [...]

Suvarnabhumi Airport Bangkok

Suvarnabhumi is the name of the airport in Bangkok.   Don’t ask me to pronounce it! I’ve never been to this airport before.  It was still under construction during my previous visit. Here are some shots: First up, a huge billboard as I approach the airport.  This would have made more sense for traffic LEAVING the [...]

One more thing…Misc Thailand pictures

Last batch of miscellaneous pictures of Thailand. My bed at the Nana Hotel in Bangkok The Bangkok Skytrain. Tallest building in Bangkok, the Baiyoke Tower II Apparently Thai’s think that bowling is hip!  (Ad for bowling alley in Siam Paragon, Bangkok) I’ve heard once you go black, you never go back! Maybe that’s what this [...]

One more thing…Jatujak market video.

Here’s a small video I took of the Jatujak weekend market my last Saturday in Bangkok Click here for Vimeo link!!

Taipei Airport Hell

Goodbye Bangkok!

Well, this will likely be my last post in Thailand unless I get lucky at the Bangkok airport with a WiFi connection and have something worth reporting. As expected, it’s almost midnight, I haven’t even started packing yet.  (Not really a problem as I’ve been living out of the suitcase for three weeks anyway.) I [...]

Fried Bugs and Pizza Hut!

Well, these are actually two separtate things!  First as promised in a previous article, some better pictures of the fried bugs you can find for sale all over Bangkok. More deep fried bugs! Then I went to Pizza Hut!  Here’s the pizza I supposedly ordered….:( You would think after visiting this country for almost a [...]

Foodland!

No, it’s not the cullinary equivalent of Disneyland.   It’s a supermarket chain in Thailand! The supermarket is like what you would see anywhere else really.  The big draw is the cheap eats lunch counter that sits inside!  This lunch counter is legendary in the Bangkok message boards as it is very cheap, has a selection [...]
